Apparel and accessories that promote the strength, power and beauty of women.
Hello, and thank you for checking out the ICAND.I.Project. Before we get into the nuts and bolts of the project, I 'm sure there are two questions that may jump out right away. One being, what's up with the dots after the "d and i?" Two, why is a man spearheading a project that designs clothing and accessories for women?
Well to answer the first question. ICAND.I. stands for I can do-it! Which is meant to give women and young girls a feeling of empowerment, encouragement and self esteem. When women and young girls wear ICAND.I. Apparel
and Accessories, they display a message of beauty and strength. They become part of a
family, a network that links together women all around the world.
As to why would a man start a clothing company themed with women empowerment? Well, I have seen my mother solely go through the struggles of raising 3 children on $10 an hour for practically all my teenage life. Should we pay the phone bill or buy groceries?, were questions frequently asked in our household. I often wondered what made her tick, what gave her the strength to go on. Well as I grew older I began to realize it it was more than the love of a parent, it was something more. There was a feeling, or belief, that she could continue, she could take care of her family, she could do it!! It doesn't require you being a man or woman to witness and appreciate someone being inspired. We at ICAND.I. provide clothing and accessories that not only let the world know how you feel, but inspires others to feel confident and powerful as well.
How we plan to utilize funding?
I suppose it is a case of making lemonade out of lemons. But recently we were met with a bit of misfortune as our sole investor( let's call him Mr. X) decided it would be best to take this company in a different direction. Mr. X believed marketing sexy T-shirt themes and accessories would be far more lucrative. He eventually did not believe clothing focusing on empowerment, and achievement were as marketable. We soon lost the ability to purchase our inventory and complete start up (I did the best I could with the demo video..LOL). But Mr. X missed the entire point. ICAND.I.'s creed is I CAN DO IT! To believe in oneself even when others do not, is the staple of this company.
1.By July 26th, if we can show we have support through
Kickstarter, we will receive a funding match from a private investor up to $8000, which will
help us to introduce ICAND.I. active wear for women and ICAND.I. for girls. Along with the printing of new design on additional fabrics and accessories.
2.Funding will go towards covering the production of the proprietary raw
materials, along with fixed and variable costs of making t-shirts and accessories, here in
3.Backers- We want to make sure our backers are well taken care of regarding receiving the product they expected, and it being delivered on time. Without you, we would not be.
4.Silk screen printing press- We would need to purchase a silk screen press machine so that we may print out our own designs. Our initial orders (Backers) will be on standby and ready to go with in 2 weeks after funding is received.
How will they be made??
Thus far, I have created all of the designs myself. I created each one from inspiration of different experiences in my life at one point or another. Our collection consist of tee's, tanks and tops ranging from a variety
of design, sizes, colors and fabric. Any of our empowering designs can
be placed on ANY item! We value high-quality
clothing made from natural materials with solid workmanship. Our
merchandise is top quality and affordable.We will work with one of the top t shirt manufacturers in the world, to ensure highest quality merchandise as well as on-time delivery.
What are the different collections??
Glad you asked. ICAND.I. will basically have 3 collections to choose from. ICAND.I. for her, ICAND.I. active wear for women or ICAND.I. for girls
click on a collection
ICAND.I. designs will be inked on our Cotton T's, Slim fit T's, tanks' and T shirt "hoodies". There will also be a tote bag and water bottle for ICAND.I. active wear for women, and a book tote for ICAND.I. for girls. Soon, with your help, we plan to also market: flip flops, cotton shorts, key chains and other accessories.
